  •  I'm glad someone said it. (none)
    Earl Pomeroy isn't representing San Francisco or West Hollywood, for God's sake, it's North Dakota! And as much as I love Howie, he's a fundraiser, not a policy-setter. He lost that job 19 months ago.

    •  Amen To That... (none)
      ....the idea that we could trade up for Earl Pomeroy in North Dakota and come out ahead on the bargain in delusional.  Even if we're singling out conservative Dems to slap around, Earl Pomeroy wouldn't be on too many people's short list.
    •  That's BS. (none)
      It would not have lost Pomeroy one vote to just say, "That's Howard's opinion, I don't share it, but we're a party where you get to speak your mind."

      Instead he said "shut up."

      But why should Dean shut up? Like Pomeroy, he's just giving his opinion and 'appealing to his base', right? So if it's good enough for Earl, why is it not good for a man who speaks for millions of us, even if we won't get a chance to vote for him, to do likewise?
